A Taste of Ramrod

September 13, 2023

When it comes to enjoying a fine cigar, finding the perfect pairing can elevate your entire smoke experience. When lighting up bourbon-flavored cigars like RamRod, there are plenty of options to round out the experience. Whether you’re looking to relax with a refreshing drink or savor the combination of different flavors, we’ve got you covered.

Dark Chocolate

For those with a sweet tooth, the slightly sweet notes of a bourbon-flavored cigar and a piece of high-quality dark chocolate will hit the spot. The deep, intense flavors of dark chocolate provide a delightful contrast to the smoky nuances of a RamRod. 


If you’re an avid coffee lover, a bold, rich espresso is the perfect companion for your RamRods. The robust flavors, slight sweetness, and earthy undertones of a well-crafted espresso create a perfect backdrop for the sweet and smoky notes of the cigar. Take a puff as you sip your espresso and enjoy!


Mix up your cigar experience by pairing a RamRod with a selection of nuts. Almonds or pecans, with their subtle flavors and satisfying crunch, provide a delightful accompaniment to the smoky richness of the bourbon-flavored cigar. Alternate between the savory nuts and the sweet cigar for a balanced smoke.

Of course, we couldn’t forget the bourbon! It’s only natural that a bourbon-flavored cigar is the perfect match for its liquid counterpart. Pour yourself a glass of your favorite bourbon and let its smooth, caramel notes intertwine with the rich tobacco flavors of the cigar.
